    Huge scores in this game. Congrats to Cook on the century.

    263 from Cook! England 569-8 in response to Pakistan's 523-8. Surely going to be a draw.

    Anyone watching the all stars game in America? On one hand it's sad to see these legends fumble through poor deliveries, on the other hand it's ******* serene seeing them play again.

    All the legends have gathered to play here in America. Sachin's Blasters and Warne's Warriors composed of such greats as Shoeb Akhtar, Vetori, Sangakara, Kalis, Ponting, Ambrose, Wasim Akram and many more. They've played two T20's over at NY and Houston already. The third match is going on right now on LA.

    Oh damn. Is it on any cable channels you have? When I'm at work I can't watch either so just have the score/scorecards ticking over in the corner of my screen.

    Ah damn. Yeah, can’t imagine all that much interest in cricket over there. Rugby has grown a lot there since I was a kid though. They’ve become a good team.

    Australia are down to 79-5 against West Indies! This tournament is really unpredictable.

    Ireland all out for 207 and England back out to bat again! What kind of "Test" match is this? We see the start of the 3rd innings on the first day!

    England’s no.11, supposed to be the weakest batsman, is on 55 not out lol. What an unpredictable match.

    He finished on 92. Apparently his highest score of the season for his club so far was 9! :funny:

    England finish on 303-9, a lead of 181 with one wicket left. It feels like anything could happen tomorrow.

    Ireland were all out for 38! Must be one of the lowest Test scores I've ever seen. So England get the win but certainly don't cover themselves in glory.

    This is something I’ve always wanted in Test cricket.
